This listing is for a rare and unusual miniature treen (wooden) box custom made to hold powder for Victorian hair wigs, c. 1850-1860. The box is hand turned and shaped as a castle turret with a screw-off top section that when removed exposes a hollow center that holds a very fine Victorian silk topped powder puff. The box has beautiful naturally aged patina.
Dimensions: 1 7/8" high and just over 1 1/2" in diameter. Weighs 1 ounce.
Condition: The wooden box is in excellent Estate condition, however, there is a small nick in the wood near the middle of the box and minor staining on base from normal wear. No other noted flaws.
